MAINE WOODSMAN'S WEATHERSTICK
A Rustic Weather Predictor from the Backwoods of Maine

"It really works!"

Originally developed by the Native Americans of the Northeast, this special tree branch (from the balsam fir tree) accurately predicts weather changes. Hung on an outside wall or door casing exposed to the weather, the stick will spontaneously bend down when foul weather is approaching, and up for fair weather! This bending effect continues in some tree species even when the limb is "dead" and dry. Some say this is an affect of humidity, but in the living plant, relative humidity is always at saturation, or 100%. Others say it is an affect of the Earth's electrostatic or orgone (life) energy field, which is stronger on clear days and weaker during periods of clouds and rain.

We know you will be fascinated by the unusual behavior of the Maine Woodsman's Weatherstick. AVAILABLE ONLY IN SETS OF THREE.

Admiral FitzRoy Crystal
Stormglass Barometer


SORRY, WE ARE NO LONGER OFFERING THESE HIGH QUALITY FITZROY STORMGLASS BAROMETERS FROM GERMANY, DUE TO HIGH SHIPPING COSTS AND OTHER FACTORS. HOWEVER, YOU CAN STILL GET THEM FROM AMAZON.COM =====>>

Admiral Fitz Roy was a founding member of the British Meteorlogical Service, and one of the few scientific people of the 1800s to study the various storm glasses that were in widespread use for weather forecasting. These storm glasses were composed of a super-saturated mixture of various chemical compounds, hermetically sealed within a heavy glass tube; crystals would alternately form and grow into strange and fascinating organic and crystalline shapes, or melt and dissappear back into solution. Observers reported that the changing character of the crystals conformed to outside weather events, in a way that could not be explained by normal temperature or pressure effects. Fitz Roy studied these various storm glasses, eventually developing one specific mixture which he found to be most suitable for weather forecasting. To quote from his Weather Book of 1863:

"Considerably more than a century ago, what were called 'storm glasses' were made in this country. Who was the inventor, is now very uncertain; but they were sold on old London Bridge...
Since 1825 we have generally had some of these vials...when it was fairly demonstrated that if fixed, undisturbed, in free air, not exposed to radiation, fire, or sun, but in the ordinary light of a well-ventillated room, or preferably in the outer air, the chemical mixture in a so-called storm glass varies in character with the direction of the wind -- not its force... though it may so vary from another cause, electrical tension. As the atmospheric current veers toward, comes from, or is only approaching from the polar direction, this chemical mixture -- if closely, even microscopically watched -- is found to grow like fir, or fern leaves -- or like hoar frost -- or even large but delicate crystallisations..."

They often resemble tree-branches, feathers, cotton fluff, and other living-organic and inorganic forms. These are NOT "frost" crystals, as the temperature was quite warm when the photo was taken. Such organic forms in "dead" inorganic solutions invite the speculation that the Fitzroy tube actually responds to some subtle life-energy, or orgone energy phenomenon at work in atmospheric weather-processes. The tube most definitely does not respond in a purely mechanical way to temperature changes.

Available in Oak (as seen in photo) or darker Mahogany finish. Please specify your choice below. We will TRY, but cannot guarantee your selection will be available. If this is absolutely important to you, contact us using the link on the lower-left side and ask what is currently available. If the wood finish does not matter to you, then leave the selection unmarked and we will send what is available.

Fitz Roy described a variety of different crystal shapes and patterns that developed within the storm glass according to different wind directions and weather conditions. His basic observation was, the more crystals within the tube were a harbinger of stormy weather. However, with the rise of the doctrine of "empty space", and the suppression of more recent research evidence on the cosmic ether and life energy theories, the idea of an unusual energetic basis to weather was no longer addressed in textbooks. Still, many industrial workers, particularly chemists working with sensitive film emulsions, kept making repeated observations of unusual chemical reactions associated with subtle weather changes and sunspot activity, even under controlled laboratory conditions (see: G. Piccardi: Chemical Basis of Medical Climatology, in our Life-Energy book section). The older ideas are now being re-examined by many scientists. Natural Energy Works has made arrangements with a European instrument maker, and can now offer these fascinating, hand-crafted instruments, each of which is mounted on an attractive wooden display with thermometer and dust cover.

An Unusual Weather Instrument!

* Watch the crystals grow and form unusual and fascinating organic shapes, like feathers and tree branches.
* Study the changing forms of the crystals, which are influenced by subtle energetic radiations from Sun, Earth, and Atmosphere!
* Learn to forecast atmospheric conditions the "Old Fashioned" way.
* Convince yourself, by direct observations, that there is an unusual energetic basis to weather and physical chemistry.

NOTE: The super-saturated solution of crystals inside the Fitzroy Stormglass show variations in activity according to outside weather, location of the jet-stream, and also generally to solar activity. In general, the more crystals and growth inside the tube, the more overcast, stormy and rainy will the weather become. At other times, the crystals may appear to go "dead" and not do much of anything. In those cases, it helps to subject the crystal tube to a vigorous shaking, similar to "homeopathic succusion". This is accomplished by firmly grasping the top and bottom of the wood display with both hands, and giving the entire device a strong shaking up and down along the length of the tube, for about 20 seconds. This will temporarily destroy whatever remnant crystal patterns are in the tube, but a day or two afterward, the crystals should come back "alive". If you break your stormglass, wipe up the liquid carefully and dilute the washcloth with water. It is composed of primarily alcohol and camphor which is toxic only if ingested. Keep out of the reach of children.
